I watched that movie, the Dave Bautista one, Army of the Dead? Not a bad action film if you ask me. Not that great either, but it was entertaining. I’m not going to spoil anything major here but if you are planning to watch it, there are some minor revelations I am going to make.
Not sure if anyone else watching the movie had the same takeaway as me, but I sat there thinking, bloody hell, the zombie has a better love life than me. The hot zombies or Alphas or whatever they were called, even they were in a relationship. They were having a child and the king dude was trying to avenge her death. I can’t even get anyone to date me and if I was killed, my company might try to summon my ghost to do a full handover my work. That’s about it. Basically my love live is more dead than a zombie.
Funny thing, being single for so long has made me unsure whether it’s just plain bad luck or self-sabotage that has led to my inability to meet anyone. I am pretty sure I have trust issues. I am also not sure how I would fare if I were to actually meet someone now. I don’t think I am an easy person to get along with, I’d probably be very clingy and very distant at the same time. Contradictory but if you knew me you’d get it.
Also the being single narrative these days, it’s just such a joke. It’s like, lets celebrate single independent women, but every movie, TV show, book with a female protagonist has some sort of male character with a romantic angle. It’s so confusing. Honestly, I like having my space, am comfortable doing pretty much anything alone but there are bad days. There’s not as much acknowledgement of that. As the single friend I am often viewed as having a “easy” life because I do not have kids, spouse, in-laws to contend with. And God forbid I mention that I am tired, apparently I can’t understand being tired because of the afore mentioned factors. I saw an Instagram post the explains this perfectly so I’m going to embed that below instead of trying to sum it up in my own words.
